Celtic’s Daniel Arzani is reportedly close to joining a Dutch club on loan from parent club Manchester City.

Australian outlet The World Game have recently talked about Arzani’s situation at Parkhead, revealing that while second-tier Dutch club NAC Breda have been linked with Arzani and the club has an agreement with Man City to develop their youth players, Arzani is set to join a Dutch first division club.

Starting with an easy one- apart from Paris Saint-Germain, which other French club did Edouard play for?

The report does not reveal the club involved, but says that Arzani will undergo a medical at a ‘mid-table Eredivisie club’ on Tuesday ahead of a loan move.

In an interview that he gave to The World Game back in May, Arzani had praised the Eredivisie because of how it develops ‘a lot of really good talent’.

Could Arzani become a transfer regret for Celtic?

No, he's not good enough

Arzani’s current deal at Parkhead runs out at the end of this month, after which he will return to the Etihad. He had joined Celtic on a loan deal from the Citizens back in the summer of 2018 (via Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts…

During his time at Parkhead, Arzani only made a couple of appearances in all competitions for the club. He played just 28 minutes for the Hoops, including a single Premiership appearance (via Transfermarkt).

His stint was marred by a cruciate ligament injury. Because of this, he had missed 82 games for the Hoops, markedly hindering his progress at Parkhead.

While no one knows how things could’ve turned out if Arzani hadn’t suffered the injury, the winger was the youngest player ever to represent Australia at a World Cup at the age of 19. This may suggest that if he stays fit, he could still go on to become a transfer regret for the Hoops if he can deliver on his previous promise.
